Prius: reliable car with a lot of pros.
I like the Prius. It has a lot of pros. It is reliable, safe and great with gas! It feels more spacious than it looks on the outside. The driving controls are sleek but took some getting used to. The steering wheel controls are very useful and comfortable and do not interfere with the driving. I like the touch screen option on the radio and Bluetooth connection. The back seat is very spacious. My husband is 6’3’ and was actually ok back there with the baby car seat in the middle. We scooched the passenger seat up a little and he had plenty of legroom. The cons: the bar in the rear trunk mirror was pretty annoying at first. Now I adjust my seat height to block out the other car lights behind me. I do feel the Prius is quite low. I have noticed this more now getting a baby in and out of the car. I didn't notice as much before. The car vents had a strange smell when we first ran the ac for a few months on and off after we first purchased. We purchased brand new. We brought it back to the dealer and they said that people often complained about that. They said it wasn't toxic so we kept it. It is completed gone now and the car still feels very new two years later.
